Geotechnical & Materials Engineering
Geotechnical & Materials Engineering relates to the engineering behavior of earth materials using the principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics to assess subsurface conditions and materials; determine their relevant physical/mechanical and chemical properties; evaluate stability of natural slopes and man-made soil deposits; assess risks posed by site conditions; design earthworks and structure foundations; and monitor site conditions, earthwork and foundation construction.
